Want to be on site during production? Danielle loves working on location and taste testing new ideas with clients in real time. There are never too many cooks.
In 2016, Danielle co-founded a monthly meet-up for creative professionals called Rise & Design with watercolorist and friend, Yao Cheng. Together we tackle common entrepreneurial hangups every first Friday: hiring employees, work/life balance, pricing, offering general support and encouragement over causal, breakfast vibes.
Yao and Danielle encourage anyone utilizing design or creative problem solving to attend, which has resulted in a robust community of diverse backgrounds, creeds, and industries with careers spanning local to international renown.
Sometimes hauling ass in the morning is asking too much. Thankfully Rise & Design has expanded to Cocktails, a mid-month happy hour every third Wednesday from 5-9pm at Curio. Same vibes, stiffer drinks.
